Before discovering essential oils years ago, I used to clean, disinfect, and deodorize my home with harsh, toxic chemicals like Lysol and bleach.  But every time I’d use them I’d get a headache.  Headache or not, I used to think that using those harsh chemicals was the only way to get my bathroom and kitchen really clean.  So I suffered on.

Thankfully, now I know better.

How to make essential oil disinfectant spray

step 1:  fill a 16 oz glass spray bottle most of the way full with vodka

Vodka, like most alcohol, is a natural disinfectant.  No need for expensive vodka; the super cheap stuff works great and it has almost no scent.

If you don’t want to use vodka, you can substitute with rubbing alcohol.  That will have similar disinfecting properties; however, it does have a much stronger medicinal smell than vodka.

Or you can substitute water for the vodka, but you will loose the disinfecting strength of the alcohol.  When using water in homemade recipes, to help prolong the shelf life of the DIY item, use either distilled water or filtered water that you’ve boiled and cooled.

step 2:  add the following essential oils

15 drops lemon essential oil

15 drops lavender essential oil

15 drops eucalyptus essential oil

Not only do these essential oils have natural disinfecting properties, the combination of these essential oils smells incredible!

BONUS– these essential oils also eliminate stinky odors, fight mold & mildew, and are antimicrobial.

How to use essential oil disinfecting spray

 

To Disinfect:

  • pre-clean surface
  • shake spray bottle each time before use
  • spray directly on counter, faucets, doorknobs, etc.  However, for remote controls, light switches and other electrical items, spray disinfectant onto cloth first and then wipe item with cloth

  • let air dry
  • use once a week or when mold and mildew growth appears

 

To Deodorize:

  • shake spray bottle each time before use
  • spray on surfaces as needed
  • I spray in stinky shoes and on athletic equipment, and then allow to air dry overnight
  • I spray in and around trashcans

To Spot Sanitize, Deodorize & Refresh Fabrics (aka Febreeze):

  • shake spray bottle each time before use
  • spot test on fabric in an inconspicuous spot
  • spray until fabric is slightly damp, but not overly wet
  • fabric should remain wet for 30 seconds.
  • let air dry
